    Story Behind the Art:

    During the 1970s, Isidoro C'cahuantico was forced to migrate when terrorist activities swept his region. Accepting various jobs, he soon found himself working as a janitor in a textile factory. Isidoro recalls, 'I became enamored with the textile arts at first sight. At night, when everyone had gone home, I began to look at the looms and machines and to experiment with them. That was the beginning of a vocation, a great gift that I have now also passed to my children. The two older ones work with me, weaving fine alpaca textiles. My daughter makes the best crochet I have ever seen!'

  • Ad misleading

    The ad states the product is 50% acrylic and 50% alpaca. The label on the product states 60% acrylic/40%. Ad needs to be changed to reflect actual product.

  • Very cozy!

    I just love the color of this throw. It's very warming, yet not too much. I am in menopause, so that says a whole lot! I plan to buy more from this vendor.
